Brett: Are you red?
Brett: Are you red? You look like you're colored red.
Needless to say, I was not colored red.

After I read this quote and loved it I looked up this Alvin Toffler character. What is his profession? Futurist! I didn't know such a thing existed! Is it too late to become a futurist? I don't know because I'm not a futurist! Apparently you just go around predicting the future. Maybe it's different from being a psychic because it uses science instead of whatever psychics use. Regardless, I love it! It sounds like a profession from a Kurt Vonnegut novel.
In other news, please watch the Ghost Whisperer. It's HILARIOUS. Do yourself that favor. Once you get over J Love Hewitt's pout it's non stop laughs. Acctually, once you can make friends with it, her pout is responsible for about 18% of the laughs.

Every thoughtful thing I read about parenting these days makes me tear up.

Harper and I we were listening to Morning Becomes Eclectic on the way to a friend's house today.
Harper: Is that the same sound?
Me: You mean a new song?
Harper: Yeah. Are those the same sounds?
Me: No honey, it's a different song.
Harper: But it SOUNDS similar.(Subtext, obvs: All your indie crap sounds the same, mom. Don't kid yourself. )
Me: Yes honey, I guess it does.
But I just love that she isn't even three and uses the word similar. I love that kid like crazy too, don't kid yourself people!

via Jane Fonds, something I really needed to hear:
Gloria Steinem, in her book “Revolution Within”
If we think of ourselves as circles, our goal is completion –not defeating others.
Progress lies in the direction we haven’t been.
If we think of families and nurturing groups as circles, the sum means maximizing each part—not restricting others or keeping secrets.
Progress is appreciation.
If we think of work structures as circles, excellence and cooperation are the goal –not competition.
Progress becomes mutual support and connectedness.
If we think of nature as a circle, then we are part of its reciprocity.
Progress means interdependence.

Confirmed on www.rickspringfield.com
Rick will be appearing at the following BORDERS locations to sign 'My Precious Little One" CDs purchased in-store with a short 3 or 4 song performance. Don't miss it!
AS IF I WOULD MISS IT!!! Just reading that information gave me something akin to a panic attack!! I'm going to have to spend the next month in a cave meditating on the mantra, "Keep it together, Levinger. KEEP IT TOGETHER!!!" I'm going to have to drag the BFF there to ensure the togetherness is kept securely in place!!! Refer to subject heading!!!
